CY8C4013SXI-400 programmer/debugger ?
Hello, I would like to use CY8C4013SXI-400 PSOC for teaching students. This is very cheap and the only one PSOC in SO8 package, thus it is possible to solder it to universal prototyping board and make small project just form parts very quickly. I prefer this way, because students can practice more skills than use some development kit. I am looking for suitable programmer, debugging capability is is highly appreciated. It should be cheap, we are not a school, but evening course for hobyists and there are no donations. I´ve checked the Internet, but without success. I know it is possible to program it using miniprog3, but we need approx. 15 programmers and it is unacceptably expensive. I´ve tried FX2 based programer for PSOC5, it is OK, but no small PSOC5 exists and PSOC4 is not supported, tried PSOC4 pioneer kit clone with CY8C5868AXI-LP035 made my myself, because I have some spare boards with this chip from previous project, it is OK, but only for PSOC4 with XRES pin. Is it possible to modify PSOC4 pioneer kit some way to support devices without XRES pin or use some other cheap diy programmer/debugger? I know there is $4 CY8CKIT-049-42xx, I like it, but there is no debugging capability and it is not good for students. I really prefer to use PSOC, because it is much more advanced, than some AVRs or PIC MCUs, but I don´t know, how to program/debug it. Any ideas?
Thank you and Best Regards
